Initiated by an art teacher wishing to engage students, Empty Bowls is now a grassroots event fighting hunger around the world. The basic premise is simple. Potters work with the community to create handcrafted bowls. Guests are invited to a simple meal of soup and bread. Guests keep the bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. The money raised is donated to an organization working to end hunger and food insecurity.
The 2018 event will be held on Saturday, April 7th at First Assembly of God Church. Guests are served a simple, delicious meal of soup, bread and dessert donated by local restaurants. Attendees will take home a handmade bowl, many made be children in our community, as a reminder of all the empty bowls in Lawrence County.
The event also features family-friendly entertainment, an exhibit of local children's artwork, Chinese Auction, and provides the opportunity to connect with work being done to combat hunger in Lawrence County.
Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door. Take out is available. The funds support the Summer Food Service Program.
Our volunteer planning committee is made up of community members and representatives from local organizations.
